SHIPPING neck OFF? Neck ON?
« on: November 07, 2018, 09:07:10 PM »
Hey there NITEFLY EXPERTS,  would you rather have a seller ship you a Nitefly WITHOUT a case, with the neck ON?  Or with the neck OFF?  And WHY?   Greatly appreciative for anyone's wisdom!   
      The seller has bubble wrapped and boxed.  Then bubble wrapped that box.  Then boxed again.  Then bubble wrapped the second box.  Then shrink wrapped the whole thing.   
    My feeling is that,  it doesn't matter how many times you box it, IFFfff the tip top of the headstock can impact the first box by sliding back and forth, end to end, inside that first box ...
Moannnnnnnn....
Signed,
Nervous, expectant parent

Sounds like a bomber set up for shipping.
Personally I wouldn’t remove the neck.
I’ve never heard of or removed a neck for shipping.
 Generally just loosing the strings is the accepted method.

Make sure it’s insured for full replacement value just in case.

I’ve been shipped guitars wrapped in bubble wrap inside a too-big single wall box without mishap...how they arrive unscathed is beyond me but they do.
